Now that spring has officially sprung, this is the time of year that most people begin the daunting process of spring cleaning their Nashville homes — reorganizing and evaluating the state of their home.
When you’re looking around your house during this time, are you happy with what you see? Or are you tired of sleeping in a drab or dated bedroom? It might be time to switch out that mattress you’ve been holding onto since college or possibly to upgrade your bedroom dressers from your grandmother’s old set. Making your bedroom look more modern doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking, though. In fact, there are some small changes you can make to breathe new life into your sleeping quarters. With that in mind, here at NashCo Furniture, we’ve put together a list with some of the many ways you can go about sprucing up your bedroom. Looking for a new piece of furniture to modernize your bedroom and bring it into the 21st century? Stop by NashCo Furniture to check out our bedroom furniture collection and the best furniture deals in Nashville.
Go Bright and Neutral
One simple way you can breathe new life into your bedroom is by changing up the color palette. By picking out bright and neutral colors, you can make your bedroom feel less claustrophobic and more fresh. This goes for everything from the paint you choose for your walls to the bedding adorning your mattress. White walls with pastel linens can really make the room feel brand new. Consider baby blues, soft pinks, and clean mint greens for the best results.
Open it Up
Something that can make a bedroom feel dated is an overwhelming amount of clutter. Try rearranging the bedroom furniture to create a more open floor plan. Choose new bedroom furniture options that feature storage to keep clutter off the floor so your bedroom feels cleaner. If you really want to go all out with your redecoration, you could even take down a wall to open up even more space, though that is reserved to homeowners (sorry, apartment dwellers).
Whether you have fluorescent lights harshing your room’s vibe or you are lacking in lighting options, you might just need to bring in some more natural light. An easy way to do this is to change the window coverings from what you currently have. Try out some clean, plain drapes or wooden Venetian blinds for an elegant solution to your lighting problems. Go ahead and let that sunshine in.
Cozy and Comfy
A great way to make your bedroom look more modern is with the addition of some natural materials and textures. A wooden bedframe can look quite striking as a contrast to the rest of your furnishings. Beyond bedroom furniture, some cozy-looking textiles can really bring everything together. Consider a faux fur throw across the bed or a texture-rich area rug to bring the coziness full-circle.
Add Subtle Accents
Just because you’ve chosen your new white and pastel color palette doesn’t mean your room has to be devoid of color. It just means you need to be more considerate when it comes to your accent pieces. By selecting an accessory like a colorful throw pillow with an interesting pattern, you can add a bit of controlled color that can really pop. Whether you’re going for a vibrant or contemporary look, the trick is picking the right accessories to complement the rest of your bedroom furniture. You can even paint one of your walls a different shade, making it an accent wall, to change the feeling you get when you look at the room. The right color combination can make your room look bigger and more open.
Simplicity Is Key
We briefly touched on this earlier, but clutter has a nasty way of making a room look dated. It can be easy to go crazy with picking out new furniture and accessories, but always remember: keeping it simple will result in a room that will stand the test of time for longer. This doesn’t mean you need to go all-in with a minimalist aesthetic, but it’s better to choose things that keep your room organized and clean, with more focus on large statement pieces. Keep it simple and clean for a room you will love for years to come.
All the Lights
One of the most cost-effective options to modernize your bedroom is with the addition of lighting features. Find lighting fixtures that suit your aesthetic to put the puzzle pieces in place for a more complete design. You can even try out different colored light bulbs to highlight or accent certain areas of your bedroom. Lamps that mount directly to your headboard with concealed wiring can be functional while creating a modern aesthetic. It might even provide some romantic ambience or just make it easy to read before you head off to dreamland.
